2020.3.38f1 Release Notes

Features

  • Editor: add editor analytics event tracking for "Refresh access" and "New link..." button click

  • Version Control: Added notification banner on the status bar for live updates

Improvements

  • Mono: Add support for direct ETW profiler integration on Windows Desktop for managed code, with no plugin required.

Changes

  • IAP: # Changelog
    ## [4.3.0] - 2022-06-16
    ### Added

    • GooglePlay - API IGooglePlayConfiguration.SetQueryProductDetailsFailedListener(Action) called when Unity IAP fails to query product details. The Action will be called on each query product details failure with the retry count. See documentation "Store Guides" > "Google Play" for a sample usage.
  • Version Control: Renamed "Invite members to workspace" option to "Invite members to organization"

Fixes

  • 2D: Fixed case in VirtualRedirectTransfer when loading AssetBundle while entering Play Mode. (UUM-2207)

(UUM-2106)

  • Android: Fix overflow of MotionEvent global references (UUM-8438)

  • Editor: Fixed crash when calling GUIClip.SetMatrix early in the domain reload. (UUM-2217)
